Ways to Donate

Changing Lives
One Woman at a Time

The solution to homelessness is safe, affordable housing and the right supports for people making the transition from a crisis to a better life.



Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to help 507 women last year. Your gift helps ensure that every woman who comes to Cornerstone receives the supports she needs to move beyond homelessness, and toward hope, healing and wholeness.

There are many ways that you can make a difference in the lives of the women who come to Cornerstone to reclaim their lives.
